Alright, so I recently broke my foot real bad (funny story, thatone) and managed to land a nice job in jewelry repair so I'm makin a good bit of money. Now, cause of my foot i'm pretty much grounded here, can't travel, but what I can do is save up shit loads of money.
So my question is, anyone have experience taking a small house boat down the Mississippi? So far from reading, dams, locks and barges seem to be the scariest things.
I just kinda wanna dock in random ass cities and play music on open mic nights in shitty bars.
Is this even possible?
Anyone got any stories to tell from boating down rivers?

The idea is in its infancy but i'm already getting that giddy feeling i get when i think of some new dream.

From a broken foot man to another, sounds cool, let me know how it goes. I want to build a Mississippi boat shack too. Might as well make it a full on tiny house.


And I feel compelled to show you this.

    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $0.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $0.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $0.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
